    A current graduate student at Wake Forest University’s School of Divinity, Jenny/Jeni Mai (they, them, theirs) was awarded the “MLK Building the Dream Award” in Spring 2018 for their justice work in domestic violence and sexual assault, their homeless advocacy within the Winston-Salem community, and their racial justice work at Sunnyside Freedom Schools here in Winston-Salem. In this lecture Jeni will discuss their formative journey as a black, multiracial, queer, trans non-binary person at Wake Forest University, and how that experience has empowered them to dream up radical healing spaces for the black, brown, queer, disabled, poor, colonized, femme, indigenous, immigrant, and enslaved bodies that exist at their institution and within their communities.
